Imox™ Herbicide provides outstanding weed control in a wide array of application sites while remaining selective in and around environmentally sensitive areas!
• Provides effective control on problematic shoreline, floating, emerged and submersed aquatic plants
• Can be applied in a wide variety of aquatic environments including: lakes, ponds, rivers, golf course ponds and irrigation canals, and ditches. Also approved for dewatered sites.
• Effective herbicide option for pre- and post-emergent control on problematic terrestrial weeds
• Provides good selectivity for non-target species when controlling invasive aquatic & terrestrial weeds
• Tank mix friendly formulation can be used alone or in combination with other herbicides to combat resistance
• No grazing or haying restrictions, Minimal irrigation restrictions
• Suppresses most grass species at low rates
Q: What are some of the challenges of using traditional herbicides on cattail?
A: First, it’s critical to ensure the product being considered for use is labelled for aquatic use. Aquatic settings can be particularly sensitive, due to the presence of fish, livestock watering, irrigation, swimming, and domestic use. While some aquatic herbicides also carry a terrestrial label, not all herbicides are labelled for both uses, nor are all aquatic herbicides labelled for use in all aquatic environments. Secondly, many aquatic herbicides traditionally used are non-selective, meaning that they will potentially kill or suppress any plant contacted, raising the potential for non-target injury to nearby plants. This can have a negative effect, harming plants whose roots help maintain soil banks for erosion control at the water’s edge. Third, cattail (Typha spp.) is a perennial plant, with two forms of propagation – through airborne/floating seeds and by rhizomes (roots) fragmentation. Growing in and near the water’s edge, rhizomes are often submerged, while other parts are emergent. Through rapid rhizome growth, fragmentation and colonization, cattails can aggressively invade ponds, water ways, and irrigation systems. For this reason, multiple treatments of many herbicide chemistries are required to achieve complete control of heavy infestations.
Q: What makes IMOX® a great choice for cattail control?
A: IMOX® (active ingredient: imazamox; WSSA B/HRAC 2, ALS inhibitor) has an excellent environmental profile, and is labelled for a wide variety of terrestrial, riparian, and aquatic sites, including many ecologically or otherwise sensitive areas. This provides convenience for the applicator, while having minimal irrigation restrictions (see label for details). IMOX® is a highly selective herbicide, and is ideal for use where desirable perennial grasses, trees, or other vegetation are desired for erosion control. Because the active ingredient inhibits acetolactate-synthase (ALS), an enzyme found only in plants, there are minimal water use restrictions on treated waters for irrigation and domestic purposes, with no livestock watering, swimming, or fishing restrictions (see label for all details). IMOX® controls problematic vegetation through foliar application to emergent, actively growing vegetation; and as an in-water treatment for submersed vegetation, or as a preemergent application for terrestrial, riparian, or aquatic weed control. IMOX® is absorbed throughout the plant’s actively growing tissues and once treated, plants immediately stop active growth. Chlorosis and subsequent plant death may take up to five weeks for complete control, though symptoms are usually seen as quickly as two weeks post treatment.
